Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Wrens

The wren nested again this year in the hanging bird house I purchased for it last year when he fought with the chickadee for the other bird house. Lately a persistent squabbling has come from the house each time an adult wren came near. The last few days the adults couldn't fit into the house with their tender morsel to feed the babies.


Today after mowing the back lawn I noticed a head peering out the hole. I grabbed the camera to record it. I got one picture before the little wren frightened and flew out. I realized then that two others were already out when the adult wren put up a fuss about my presence.

When I turned back to put the camera away there was a fourth baby at the hole of the bird house. It posed for this picture then flew out, too to join its siblings and parents in the brush.
